About The Milk Carton Kids

With its ethereal harmonies, intricate guitar-playing and soul-stirring lyrics, California folk duo The Milk Carton Kids has swiftly emerged as a major force in the American folk tradition.

2013’s debut The Ash & Clay was the band’s national breakthrough, earning it its first of several Grammy nominations. New release The Only One, the band’s fifth acclaimed album, finds Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan performing a stripped-down acoustic set without a backing band. The album signalled a return to the core of what they are about musically: the duo.

The amazing musicianship of these two fine artists, coupled with their ample wit and charming ‘sibling-like’ (NPR) dynamic, makes for a thoroughly entertaining performance, one in which their powerful gift for song and storytelling will be on full display.
